Epic-M 5K cinema camera
Used. Cosmetic 8/10
| This is the rare Epic-M opposed
to the Epic-X, which means it was hand-built to the highest tolerances
rather than cast and assembled in a manufacturing plant. The Red
Epic-M and Epic-X Mysterium-X camera features a 5K sensor capable
of 1-120 frames per second at full resolution. The Epic can reach
up to 18 stops of dynamic range with HDRx (13.5+ without engaged).
Can also shoot 4K (1-150fps), 3K (1-200fps), and 2K (1-300fps).
Redcode compression choices of 18:1 to 3:1. 3G-SDI / HD-SDI clean
feed, HDMI monitor output, and full compatibility with a wide array
of Red and third party DSMC accessories. Redcode RAW files give
you the ultimate freedom and control when finished. Capable for
professional use for cinematography or still photography. Highly
flexible and customizable so you can have just what you need for
your production and nothing you don't. And of course features all
the professional connections and features one would expect from
a high end cinema camera. Different lenses such as Canon EF, Nikon,
PL, or Leica-M can be acheived by changing the lens mount. Control
is acheived via Red Side Handle, Redmote, and/or Red Pro Touch LCD
Includes the 1.8" Redmag SSD side module and Wooden Camera
Easy Top-X top cheese plate with removable link cover. This does
not include any other accessories. This does not include monitor,
only pictured to show hour reading. There is no lens mount, so
you will need to choose a Red or Wooden Camera mount of choice
such as Canon EF, PL, or Nikon.
Cosmetically has some marks in finish and paint wear, mainly
on bottom, but overall presentable and clean compared to most.
Upgraded to recent version 6.3.102 firmware. 1420 hours logged
on hour meter. The internal battery has been replaced so this
will keep the time/date code correctly upon restart, unlike most
of these on the market (battery replacement is actually a complicated
procedure that most users cannot do so this is a valuable thing
to be done already). There is one flaw, the headphone jack is
loose, so that the headphone doesn't click in securely. It will
still work if in the right position, but it can be finicky. Most
will record audio separately and not need this or can work around
it by perhaps taping the headphone connection once in the right
position to keep it secure. Other than this, this Epic has all
functions, connections, and sensor tested in excellent working

but one can always gets a component to HDMI converter for example
if they need that. Many use this as an affordable studio / live

of situations where larger cameras are impossible.
This includes XLR adapter, remote, ac adapter / charger, long-life
battery, component/av cables, manual (not pictured), lens hood
w/ integrated cap. This does not include external mic. Good cosmetic
condition with some exterior scratches from transportation, not
from usage because this has low hour meter readings. The hood
shows a bit of extra wear because it came from a different camera
with more usage. The previous owner did etch the serial number
into the bottom of the camera. Clean LCD screen. Good lens optics.
Hours of use: drum 0x10, tape 0x10, threading 5x10, operation
1x10. So this has had under 10 hours of actual usage, which is
quite rare indeed. All functions, features, connections, tape
transport are tested in good working order.

zebra, tally, display/aspect, focus peaking, contrast and brightness.
Also will ship in a hard shipping case (from a different model
camcorder but fits well).
This does show quite a bit of cosmetic paint wear and areas
of paint touchups, but looks presentable as a whole - so is a
professionally field used camcorder but not abused. The LCD has
several scratches in the protective window, which don't much show
up when in use (plus the LCD on this is not for critical viewing
anyway like the viewfinder or output). The hinged door over the
audio controls has been removed for convenience. There is a lot
of cosmetic wear in the rubber around the speaker. The label for
filter wheel is missing, but this of course does not affect use
of filters. This has been upgraded to the latest great version
3.2 firmware with all the feature improvements, better pixel correction,
and bug fixes that entails. The composite input option is installed,
no other options are included. Hours: Operation 4158, Laser 27,
spindle 1951, loading 16400. The most important reading is laser
hours. These are rated at 6,000+ laser hours, so 27 laser hours
means this has a ton of life left. Good optical block. All functions/features
tested in good working order. Additional units are available.
